  • Notes 
    • From "George Bailey of Maryland and Some of His Descendants" by Margaret Gerhart Woolf 1992

      "The first of the American Hayman family was Henry Hayman who was born in Devonshire, England about 1634. The available evidence suggests that he came from the vicinity of the village of Netherex in the Hundred of Highridge in South Devon. Parish records list the death of a Henry Hayman as a resident in the Parish. There was a Henry Hayman living in nearby Silferton as early as 1569. In addition, no where else in Devon are the names of Henry Hayman's five sons (Henry, James, WIlliam Charles and Arthur) repeated in local records with such regularity over several generations.

      "Henry Hayman arrived in the Colony of Virginia in 1650 as a labor indentured to William Morgan of Gloucester (now Mathews) County. On October 26, 1650, William Morgan (Morgaine) was granted 300 acres in Gloucester County on Mockjack (or Mobjack) Bay in payment for transporting Henry Hayman (Hamond) and others.

      "Henry remained in Gloucester County after the indenture ended and he married there to a woman named Ellinor. On August 16, 1663, their first child, Henry Hayman, was born in Gloucester County.

      "The family moved from Gloucester to Maryland prior to May 1664, where Henry patented 200 acres on Great Monie Creek in Somerset County. The property was called "Second Choice." On April 5, 1666, he patented an additional 200 acres of land and named it "Hayman's Hill." ...

      "According to Somerset County records, Henry Hayman was a planter relying primarily on tobacco as a cash crop. "

      His father may have been Isaac Hayman or Isaac Haymon.

      From "Old Somerset of the Eastern Shore" p 473-474:

      The following persons were entitled to 50 acres of land each for coming into Maryland to settle. In some instances they assigned their "right" to the 50 acres to others, who received a grant thereof. In other instances the parties were transported by others who therefore received the "right" of 50 acres of land.

      Those whom we can prove to have been actual settlers in the Somerset area are marked with an asterisk. The names of these "rights" have been obtained from the Land Patent books, Hall of Records, Annapolis, which books contain records of surveys as made on warrants issued and names of those proving "rights" as well as the patents issued. The references given: e. g. (5:209-211) refer to volume and page of Land Patent books.

      p 478
      August 10, 1666--George Johnson and Jno. Wynder enter Henry Hayman,* Elinor Hayman,* Henry Hayman, Jr.* (10:190).

      p281-282
      ,..., from Gloucester, in Virginia, came Henry Hayman, ...,
      ,..., Henry Hayman, ..., were of English "origins."

      p 463
      Henry Hayman and Cornelius Johnson appraised the household goods of the Williams family. This family had been murdered by (an) Indian(s) of the Nanticoke tribe:
      ,...,Cornelius Johnson and Henry Hayman were the appraisers. (EB 14, pp. 236-7.)
